cool groove / fusion band!
I had never heard of this show before today. I picked it because I liked the name of the band adn it had streaming options available so I could listen without downloading. The band sounds like a cool fusion mix of jazz and funk. there is a flute, drumms, guitar, a sidhar at times, etc. No hamond organ but they can really jam in a good way and make some fun sounds to groove to. The recording is a little drums heavy, making it so you can't really hear the vocals as well. even when the drums are soft, the vocals are 'blurry' and not so clear but still somewhat discernable. It also sounds overall Left channel biased. The songs are not that long and a lot of fun. Track 5 sees a sidtar coming out (the indian instrument). The crowd sounds kinda small and they are chatty! because the mics are right on the stage lip, the crowd isn't picked up much, but you can still hear them yapping away at the show. Sounds like a fun time, if Tala ever comes to san diego, ca i'll see them and tape them.

I was at this show, and they tore the f'n roof off. The house was packed, the air steamy, a wicked time for everyone.
